NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 8 (UPI) -- A New Jersey assemblyman won a fourth term in office three weeks after his death.
Donald Tucker was also the longest-serving member of the Newark City Council.
"It shows the kind of support my father had and the kind of support my family still has," Tucker's son, Kiburi, told the Newark Star-Ledger. "My father was a man of the people and they respect honesty."
Essex County Democrats must name someone to serve the balance of Tucker's term, while a special election is to be held to decide on a permanent replacement.
